Top Misspelled Search Keywords




Yahoo’s Buzz Log recently published a list of the Top 20 Misspelled Searches:

1. Rachel Ray (Rachael Ray)
2. Tatoos (Tattoos)
3. Scarlett Johanson (Scarlett Johansson)
4. Wierd Al Yankovic (Weird Al Yankovic)
5. Evanesence (Evanescence)
6. Soduku (Sudoku)
7. Barbara Streisand (Barbra Streisand)
8. Louis Vitton (Louis Vuitton)
9. Jamie Presley (Jaime Pressly)
10. Jimmy Buffet (Jimmy Buffett)
11. Brittany Spears (Britney Spears)
12. Brittney Spears (ibid)
13. Anna Nichole Smith (Anna Nicole Smith)
14. Eva Mendez (Eva Mendes)
15. Jessica Beil (Jessica Biel)
16. The Biggest Looser (The Biggest Loser)
17. Jennifer Anniston (Jennifer Aniston)
18. Marie Antionette (Marie Antoinette)
19. Mercedez Benz (Mercedes Benz)
20. Micheal Jordan (Michael Jordan)


The terms inside the parenthesis are the correct spelling. If you looked closely, 18 of the 20 listed are actually proper nouns. The two other words — tatoos and the biggest looser – begs the difference. Accordingly, the word looser isn’t a misspelling if you take it out of the context of the reality TV show of the same title. So that leaves us with tatoos as the most often misspelled word.

Come to think of it, Yahoo searchers aren’t really that bad spellers, aight?
